Moved from ID Request.

Anatis labiculata
The pattern on the pronotum distinctly says Anatis, and the lack of halos around the spots indicates labiculata.


Anatis labiculata
I agree after having compared the photos of BG of the two species. If anyone wants to change the id to Anatis labiculata that is fine with me.

Anatis actually
possibly A. labiculata but I don't have much experience with this genus

Olla v-nigrum
I'll have to look that one up. Thanks! Thinking back to last year when I saw this beetle I may have considered Anatis but decided on Olla. Don't know why.
